information submitted by Matt Tiffy, Assistant Athletic Director

Madison “Pineapple” Drewno
LANSING, Ill. (September 30, 2018) – Senior Madison Drewno runs cross country and has run all four years for the TF South Rebels.

Why do you like to run?

I run three miles every race, and I like running because when I am upset, stressed, or angry, I can just go for a run and let it all out.

What is your favorite moment while running at TF South?

My favorite moment while running was when I made it to sectionals for the first time as a freshman.

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to attend one of the Southern Illinois Universities and major in elementary education.

What is your favorite subject and teacher and why?

My favorite subject is geometry with Mr.Beck because he was great with giving out life advice, and he really helped me with math, which I used to struggle with, but now I like math.

“Maddy is an asset to the cross country team due to her leadership and drive. She remains focused at meets and pushes herself and her teammates. Because of her speed, work ethic, and sense of humor, she has inspired her teammates to test their limits and continuously improve as well.”

-Coach Patty Heiman

Each month the TF South coaching staff choose to spotlight a male and female athlete whose performance on and off the field is notable. Students are nominated based on how they have helped their teams and the strength of their academic average that allows them to participate in sports.
